Book launch: The Alternative: towards a new progressive politics
You’re warmly invited to the launch of a provocative new book ‘The Alternative’ on 25 September presents one of the biggest challenges to the left of British politics.
Based on two premises – that working together with like-minded people produces better outcomes, and the UK may have reached the point where only some form of ‘progressive alliance’ will ever deliver a left-of-centre government – it is a collection of essays compiled jointly by a leading Labour MP (Lisa Nandy), a Liberal Democrat (Chris Bowers), and a Green (Caroline Lucas). It covers policies and values that could unite the progressives, and looks at the possible mechanics for cooperation.
Lisa Nandy MP, Caroline Lucas MP and Chris Bowers will be in conversation at this Compass meeting chaired by Jacqui Howard, National Organiser at Compass to discuss cross-party cooperation among the progressives in British politics.
